Lost In My World by Rob Powell

I found a few reviews on Goodreads for this short story called Lost in My World by Rob Powell and wanted to try it out. I picked up the eBook on Amazon for free and was surprised how short it was. I really enjoyed it! Read below for my my review and some information about the author.

The blurb:

 A short story that is not quite as it first seems. The story is based in an English hospital where David Polk is a patient. The story is written in the first person as David Polk, he tells of his recent birthday when he has just turned fifteen and how his life has been put on hold since being taken into hospital. David’s frustrations grow and his mischievous nature gets the better of him as he tires of the hospital routine. A quick and fascinating read that takes you into the mind of some mental health issues.

My Review:

*May Contain Spoiler*

Lost in My World by Rob Powell is a short story about a mental patient named David Polk.

I saw reviews on this awhile back and wanted to give it a try. I couldn’t remember what it was about and went in blind.

The dream just about made me cry. It was at that point that I started to figure out what was happening and the reality unfolded.

I am amazed how short it was, but it’s good. The ending was unexpected.
